Today we’re expanding our boarders and going a little further North to share with you all this gorgeous engagement shoot. Captured by Ewa Labuda Photography, Stephanie and Dominic ventured to East Lothian, in Scotland, to take their pre-wedding photos on the picture-perfect Seacliff Beach, which overlooks Tantallon Castle. We talk to Stephanie to find out more about this amazing day and why brides and grooms-to-be should opt to have an engagement shoot…
Why did you choose to have a pre-wedding shoot?
Our photographer Ewa Labuda had suggested the pre-shoot as it’s a good way to prepare for photography on the big day. Now we feel relaxed, prepared and know exactly what to expect.
Where was the location? Why did you choose this location?
Our engagement shoot was on Seacliff Beach, North Berwick. It’s a beautiful hidden bay where we spend a lot of time and has incredible views over Bass Rock and Tantallon Castle. Our wedding ceremony will be by Tantallon Castle which was a perfect fit… so much so we have used one of the photographs for our wedding invitations.
Would you advise other couples to get a pre-wedding shoot?
Absolutely. We were reluctant at first, but we absolutely loved our pre-wedding shoot. My cheeks hurt from laughing all evening.
How did you find the experience?
Really enjoyable. We were completely ourselves, and were delighted that we even got to go out paddle boarding as part of our shoot.
Why did you choose Ewa as your photographer?
Ewa has an incredible energy and is so excited for our day… possibly as excited as we are. You get what you pay for with photography, and Ewa is professional, rendering and completely worth the price to have these incredible photographs to treasure.
If there’s one piece of advice you could give other couples what would it be?
Be yourself. This is your day, and your engagement journey. Choose a setting, theme, prop that is unique to you. Ewa will also thank me for saying that no photographer wants a beautiful sunny day. Dramatic skies make incredible backdrops.
